Feeling like some poetry this is where my favourite opened up…

Advice to Psychologists

You spies that pierce the mind with trenches,slessor
Feasting your eyes through private panes,
Who, not content with Heavenly stenches,
Insist on taking up drains,

For you I’ve only two suggestions,
Who prowl with with torches in this Bog –
Small good you’ll get from asking questions;
Walk on your nostrils, like a dog.
                                     p144 Selected Poems Kenneth Slessor


Okay this is not my favourite Slessor poem (that would be Five Bells) but that’s the deal with Teaser Tuesday you just have to go with the fall of the page.
